Wow! It has been 26 years since it has happened in the United States. This is the year for the solar eclipse to pass through our area here in Oregon. It is when the moon passes between the sun and the planet earth. It will bring a couple minutes of darkness to happen about 10:15 am.

There are many celebrations to celebrate the total solar eclipse of 2017. We have some fun planned for after the eclipse here at Embrace Oregon. Join in on some fun with us with one of our…  After the Solar Eclipse Wine Tour specials going on August 21st through 27th.

Give us a call if you are interested in sampling some award winning wines at our week of solar eclipse fun.

 Reservations can be made by calling (503) 474-0762

We would love to show you Oregon. Today was a special day. I met someone today for a wine tour. She was coming to McMinnville for the day from out of state. We met at the Evergreen Aviation Museum. When you go to pick up a new person you have never met before it is a great opportunity to learn about a new friend. It gives you time to learn about where they come from and things they like to see and do.

As we started out to see Yamhill County’s wine country we talked about where she came from and the type of wines she like. She told me of her areas of expertise with her job and how she loved to travel and try new foods and wines.

I gave her a little history of the area and about Oregon’s wonderful wine country. Since this was her first time wine tasting in Oregon she was eager to learn and sample wine. We traveled through McMinnville and headed to Carlton Cellars for a short tour of the winery and to sample wine. From Carlton Cellars we worked our way through the countryside to Laurel Ridge Winery where we had a light snack lunch along with… some more wine. Our last stop of the day was at Methven Family Vineyards. Which sits among acres if grapevines that have just been harvested. The leaves are starting to turn from green to gorgeous fall colors.

As the day came to an end and it was time to return her back to McMinnville, I knew Embrace Oregon and I had a new friend. It is always good to take the time to enjoy the day with someone new that you can call friend.
